(M, 47, 5'11) Been doing this for 8 weeks and have moved from 212 to 204. Other than regular walking, haven't really "changed" my diet, other than I eat less. 3-4 times a week, I have a glass or two of alcohol (beer, wine). Rarely do I feel the need to each junk food.
For me, the effect of 2tbsp of canola two times per day is the complete elimination of that feeling of being starving.
I suspect some of the effect is from the two hour window around the canola oil (for me, usually once mid morning and once mid afternoon) helping me be a bit more conscious (not obsessed though) of when I eat.
Generally, I have a light breakfast (bowl of cereal and some coffee) then click on the stopwatch function of my watch. When I think about it and check and it is over an hour, I drink the canola oil; then I set the stopwatch going again. When I think about and check and it is over an hour, I eat lunch, etc...
Sometimes I can't squeeze it in so I end up drinking one dose of oil at night. I don't sweat it if I miss it though.
That is what I really like about this "diet:" no real sweating it. I like the slow, fairly consistent reduction.
BTW, had a physical with blood test a week or so ago and my BP was down, LDL and total Cholesterol down and triglycerides way down. (use Liptor, but hoping to get off of it...).
